Re: 25 yrs ago this month : Cesar RIP

Every year I get reminded of this and every year it hurts. His Joker is my all-time favorite Batman villain from all across the spectrum of Batman TV and film arch-criminals. Every time I read a Batman comic with Joker I always hear Cesar's voice. To me he was just that iconic and, in terms of a tru...

Re: ADVANCE REVIEW: Dig Diamond’s Burt Ward DICK GRAYSON Bust

I'm getting more of a short-haired Kate Jackson vibe but we're on the same wavelength, SprangFan. It's weird because in the concept drawing the likeness to Burt is dead-on and then the sculpt goes right off the rail. Anyways, I have almost the entire Diamond bust line but have passed on the Adam and...

Re: NEW BATMAN CATWOMAN STATUE

All of Braford''s Batguano can be found on their site here: https://m.bradfordexchange.com/search/Batman.html I do believe our good neighbors to the North and elsewhere however, may not be able to view their site for whatever reason. You believe right, John. With this dopey cultural Berlin Wall we ...

Re: POLL: Does The Siren have a superpower?

I remember a singer named Minnie Ripperton in the '70s She had a four octave ed range and when she hit high notes I thought glass was going to shatter. I think a seven octave range is super normal and represents some sort of X Men like mutation. I liked Eddie Murphy and Dave Chappelle's version of ...

Re: 53rd Anniversay Plans?

Keith,

I actually didn't realize it was approaching until you mentioned it. I think I'll watch the premier Catwoman episode again in honor of Chuck's recent wicked find.

Re: Is your Favorite Movie Celebrating an Anniversary in 2019?!

I guess I could go with the 1989 Batman as being one having an anniversary although it is my third favorite Batman behind the 1966 and 1992 releases. Therin, that Star Trek drawing is awesome. I remember the anticipated hype for the film when it was coming back in '79. Does anyone else remember the ...

Re: Jackie Gleason as The Penguin

Wow, this is a good one! Does this ever have me wondering. One the one hand, Gleason seem to have been too big, loud, rough, and boisterous to have been Penguin. On the other hand, maybe one could argue that Penguin was all of those things only in a smaller stature. It really depends on your own per...

Re: Superman '78

I have fond memories of my mom taking me to see it. She had a hard purse that I sat on like a booster seat. Still the best Superman movie ever. I think so too. There were just so many things in that movie that, at the time were so cool. The iconic movie soundtrack still has legs today. You hear tho...

Re: Roy Clark Passes Away at 85

First Stan the Man' Lee, than Katherine MacGregor - the infamous Mrs. Olsen from Little House on the Prairie, was announced passing on this morning and then almost immediately afterwards Roy Clark left us. This has been a sad week for those of us who remember them with fondness, especially from the ...

Re: 13 QUICK THOUGHTS: The Kitschy Kick of FILMATION BATMAN

I love Filmation. I just finished reading an article about the Groovie Goolies in the latest Retro Fan magazine. It was interesting as I discovered that Filmation never put out any of their soundtracks or background music to their various series. Apparently the closest they came was around 1975/1976...

Re: 1973 Saturday morning poll, pt. 1

I have to say even though I picked one per time slot I was guilty of getting yelled at for sitting too close to the TV. I'm sure many of us remember TVs didn't have remotes back then so sitting near the TV enabled us to switch between boring parts or commercials. Having said that, during rerun seaso...

Re: The Greatest BATMAN Costume a Kid Could Have

I had the same costume as John with the cloth cowl and domino mask. I loved it and wore it a lot way past Halloween.
